Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Adorning the Adorned

Scott Peers
Seren Morgan-Roberts

This quest begins immediately after On Borrowed Time. After the death of Hemming, Eivor seeks an exiled craftsman to adorn a final gift for the Jarl.

Speak with Vili in Hemthorpe

To begin, you’ll need to speak with Vili, who can be found on the eastern side of Hemthorpe. Eivor will suggest that the shield crafted by Gunnar needs a little something extra, and Vili tells Eivor that the master craftsman can be found at Peak Cavern, to the east of Hemthorpe. It’s an easy path from Hemthorpe to the cavern, so just mount your horse and follow it to the cave entrance.

Find the Hermit in Peak Cavern

Once inside, you’ll need to navigate through the cave until you find the chamber where the hermit lives. The path is fairly linear so you shouldn’t have any trouble. Once you find the hermit, speak with him and then complete the stone stacking beside him. This is a fairly simple stack, and functions like other cairn mysteries in that you just need to stack them to reach a certain point, then confirm by validating the arrangement.

How Should You Remember Hamming Jarl?

After you’ve stacked the stones, you’ll have a few dialogue options to go through. The first set doesn’t matter, but the second set relates to how you will remember Hemming Jarl, and thereby which marking you want etched on his shield. You can choose between Strength, Wisdom, or Determination, with each option’s graphic shown in corresponding order on the cave wall. Your choice will only impact which design is on the shield.

(1 of 6) You’ll find Vili in the east of Hemthorpe.

Once you’ve made your choice a cutscene will follow, and the quest will end. You can leave the cave from the western exit in the hermit’s chamber.
